To go someway in quoting Julie Andrews, “The Internet is alive with the sound of Star Wars VII speculation”. Already big dogs are reported to return; Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams and Mark Hamill are rumoured to be reprising their roles from the original trilogy whilst GirlsAdam Driver is also reportedly set to play the villain.

On the other side of the coin however, big names in Hollywood are also cropping up already in Star Wars VII’s trivia page as having been ‘considered for the role’ (whatever that means) without making the grade – Michael Fassbender and Hugo Weaving seem to have lost out to Driver whilst Saoirse Ronan was reported to have read for a role – did she get it? Didn’t she? Who knows?

It’s a long way to go until December 18th, 2015 and there will no doubt be a copious amount of casting rumours, »
